The favourite for the title come the end of tomorrow, Gary Anderson is still in the reckoning at Minehead. He defeated ‘Rapid’ Ricky Evans in double quick time 10-3.
It has always been known that fast players suit the Flying Scotsman and despite when Evans tried clawing it back; Anderson was in control throughout.
Also among those through is John Part. ‘Darth Maple’ made a stunning comeback to win 10-9 against Ron Meulenkamp. He hit a great under pressure 93 checkout to win and have his best run in a very long time.
